Early Monday morning, the National Football League confirmed Tom Brady's stolen jersey from Super Bowl 51 was discovered. In fact, the worldwide media member who stole Brady's jersey did so with relative ease, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

"Fo Sports has learned the Federal Bureau of Investigation and NFL Security believe they have located Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey and [are] in process of returning [it] to Patriots", Glazer tweeted on Monday.

Tom Brady's missing jersey from Super Bowl LI has been found after a almost two-month-long search following the New England Patriots' historic victory over the Atlanta Falcons in February.

The NFL referred additional questions to the FBI, citing the ongoing investigation.

Brady's shirt had gone missing during the celebrations after the 39-year-old collected his fourth Super Bowl MVP award, having helped the Patriots rally from a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28.


The person who is believed to have taken the jerseys was not a ticket holder but had a "valid reason" to be at the game, Acevedo said.

The mystery of Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl LI jersey has been solved.

Police had valued the jersey at around $500,000. "I know they worked hard on this case - and it is very much appreciated".

"This story right here - if I came to you as a Hollywood scriptwriter and said, 'Here you go, ' you'd throw me out the door". With the locker room still closed to members of the media, Brady posed for photos and mingled with teammates.

The announcement about the recoveries comes six weeks after Brady was named MVP in Super Bowl LI. "It's kinda like a piece of art", Acevedo told reporters. The connection between all items is that they were memorabilia from the Super Bowl MVPs.
